[PATCH 12/14] KVM: x86/mmu: Fold max_mapping_level() into kvm_mmu_hugepage_adjust()

Fold max_mapping_level() into kvm_mmu_hugepage_adjust() now that HugeTLB
mappings are handled in kvm_mmu_hugepage_adjust(), i.e. there isn't a
need to pre-calculate the max mapping level.  Co-locating all hugepage
checks eliminates a memslot lookup, at the cost of performing the
__mmu_gfn_lpage_is_disallowed() checks while holding mmu_lock.

The latency of lpage_is_disallowed() is likely negligible relative to
the rest of the code run while holding mmu_lock, and can be offset to
some extent by eliminating the mmu_gfn_lpage_is_disallowed() check in
set_spte() in a future patch.  Eliminating the check in set_spte() is
made possible by performing the initial lpage_is_disallowed() checks
while holding mmu_lock.
